International Higher Education: The Big Picture
When: January 26, 2022
1:00pm ET/ 10:00am PT
International higher education has evolved, in some respects, dramatically, over the last decade. Issues, trends and practices have been transformed by one of the most dynamic and tumultuous periods in the history of international higher education, brought on by the pandemic, a re-emergence of nationalism and the recognition of the power imbalances between the developed economics and the global south, and racial inequities within and across borders.
Join the editors of the Handbook of International Higher Education, Second Edition in this first webinar in a series to discuss the big picture of international higher education in moving forward into a post pandemic future.
Co-hosted with the Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA).

Understand the problems. Identify the opportunities. Create the solutions.
"When trying to understand, let alone navigate, a landscape as chaotic and confusing as America's credential ecosystem, a guidebook from trusted experts is essential. This is that—the resource you'll want to read and reread to ensure you have a firm foundation for the journey."
"Investing in the Educational Success of Black Women and Girls demonstrates, from our own lived experiences, the multifaceted and continued need to look critically at the historically and present day exclusionary policies, practices and structure of US education that serve to predetermine our success. This anthology pushes us all to dig deeper into the organizational intent of learning as a transformational and liberatory practice, and to cast aside its role as indoctrination."
Putting Small Group Instructional Diagnosis to Work
"The authors have delivered the first one-stop, comprehensive guide to SGID in a research-informed, direct, and exceptionally readable style. They break down the last few decades of scholarship and practice on the SGID into coherent, useful, and well-organized advice, keeping the needs and interests of instructors and educational developers front and center, to the benefit of student learning. The drawing together of existing research and examples from the authors’ experiences in starting, renewing, and evaluating SGID programs will guide readers as they develop an SGID program and integrate it with other CTL services.
Hurney, Rener, and Troisi’s Midcourse Correction for the College Classroom is a powerful tool for educational development practice and a must-read for faculty and educational developers striving for improvement. It can support the development of a shared vision and understanding of SGID and can flexibly be used with individual faculty and colleague-based programs, across career stages and institutional types. Imagine a book that is like having a respected and trusted faculty colleague just down the hall, ready with a wonderful array of lessons learned and insights. That is this book."
—from the Foreword by Mary Deane Sorcinelli
Social Justice in Action
"An amazing collection of accessible and inviting writing for those who do (and aspire to do) social justice work in higher education and student affairs, as well as for those who want to inspire through their teaching about how to do such work! Each chapter provokes thinking and rethinking of staid approaches to and conceptualizations of student affairs work. A vibrant and hopeful call for how a critical praxis framework can open up the potentialities for more sustainable and liberatory futures."
